Memphis Grizzlies DFS Spin

Ja Morant is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Timberwolves. Ja's devastating ankle injury ended up kicking off a bizarre season of injuries and COVID-related disappointments and postponements so it's only fitting that he's the source of some much-needed good news. Even if he doesn't play this weekend you have to think Morant will be ready to rock and roll by Monday. And yes, this should mean the end of Tyus Jones having fantasy value.

Minnesota Timberwolves DFS Spin

Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) is listed as probable for Friday's meeting with the Grizzlies. KAT felt like he tried to come back too soon from his wrist injury but he's feeling better now. The Wolves don't have a back-to-back until Friday and Saturday Jan. 22 & 23, so hopefully KAT's good to go for another week.
